AFRICAN ENDEAVOR: 1940 - Mahogany sailing board from ship

Product Description

Farrell Lines:  The mahogany sailing board from the AFRICAN ENDEAVOR, one of two Farrell Lines’ passenger ships that sailed to Africa in the 1940s and 1950s. 

The board measures 20” by 30” and is three-quarters of an inch thick.  Battens are fitted with metal hangers are screwed on back.  Carved into the face are the ship’s name, AFRICAN ENDEAVOR and the Farrell Lines’ houseflag.  Underneath are four black-painted boxes where stewards would write information in white chalk.  Carved letters are next to each: “Shifts At”, “Sails At”, “On”, and “For”.  Especially when fully loaded, the AFRICAN ENDEAVOR was low enough to the water that passengers and crew could easily read this sign when hung from a railing up on Boat Deck or by the companionway on B Deck. 

The ship first sailed in 1940 as Delta Line’s lovely DELBRASIL.  After several years in South American service she was drafted into the Navy as a communications ship.  After WW2 Delta Line did not want her back.  Farrell Lines bought her and sister DELTARGENTINO and remade them into AFRICAN ENDEAVOR and AFRICAN ENTERPRICSE.  The sisters sailed up to 1959 when they were placed into long-term lay-up.  In 1969 she was sold to Boston Metals of Baltimore and scrapped.  The sign probably was removed at that time.  

Very good condition.
